    Hopefully I haven't missed an existing thread but if I have please let me know. Otherwise please do share your lighthouse images.

    Here is a shot of one of the few lighthouses here in Western Australia, the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse.

    Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse {01_04}
    by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

    This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in Western Australian through the medium of Waymarking [1].

    The Cape Naturaliste lighthouse is a heritage listed building/lighthouse which was built in 1904.

    According to the Heritage Council the:

    "Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and Quarters was an important link in the development of coastal lights which eventually circled mainland Australia, following an inter-colonial conference held in 1873 that recognised the need for additional lights along the Australian coastline.

    The Chance Brothers lens and optical equipment is still in operation in the lighthouse and is a piece of precision engineering equipment which has continued in perfect working order since 1903."

    9345117596_e7b0b3288d_k. Belle Tout-Edit.jpg by nearlycossack, on Flickr

    This is the famous Belle Tout lighthouse near Eastbourne in Sussex. That's the quickly eroding cliff edge on the left - the building was transported back already by 56 feet in 1999 due to the encroaching threat..........

    It was a panorama and it's a shame that I didn't allow a bit more head room.

    Some old film scans:
    Watch Hill RI

    WATCHHILL-002-Edit.

    Plum Beach Light - a great comparison shot to my one above. To give folks an idea of how dilapidated it was, the estimate was around 50 tons of guano removed when the funding was secured to restore the tower.

    Armando, you're making me homesick. I loved RI, and I will never be able to come back to visit my friends over there (cannot fly anymore). I am going to see what I can find in my old RI photos (to scan), later today.

    Poplar Point Light at the entrance to Wickford Harbor. The original lighthouse is in the background to the left. Sold for approximately $4000 in the late 1800s, the property is currently valued at $6 Million.

    Speaking of lighthouses, I can recommend the movie "The Light Between Oceans." Check it out.
